Subject: Not Trey's First Show
Anyway, great show definitely give a listen. 83' doesn't get enough love. Might not be as refreshed as late 80s but hot none the less.
Subject: This is not a Dick's Pick because?
Nice recording, needs a little bass but that's easily fixed. Garcia and the lads are on point, Playin' is remarkable!
Subject: Best sounding source.
Subject: Love those New england venues!
Subject: who cares
Subject: maybe not trey's first?
Subject: Trey Anastasio
Subject: Was it really almost 28 years ago?

Subject: The last great show I saw.
First show 7/31/74... Last show JFK 1995.... but this was the last great one... '85 had some highs, but also some lows... '86 a major disappointment capped with almost losing Jerry... Some great moments in '87, but didn't make any shows where they strung 2 great sets together.... from there, it was more about being with my buddies than the music... always fun... even down the home stretch for Jerry... but never like this night... Even though the night before had that monstrously wonderful Scarlet/Fire, this night ripped that one from limb to limb... Even if they hadn't dropped St. Stephen, this was THE NIGHT to be in Hartford... BRRB, TMNS, amazing China Doll... great PITB... post drumz space laced with energy.... even Day Job and Throwning Stones were pumped up versions... And to send us home to the sweet strains of Brokedown Palace... .Yes, this was a night you could honestly and proudly say, "There's NOTHING like a Grateful Dead concert" God bless Jerry. I know he's resting in peace :)
Listening again today, I still believe this was my last great show. Even with a second Day job in 2 days and a Throwing Stones.....
Subject: St. Stephen is quite good
Subject: set break?
Subject: Damn I love this show...
The boys are all out of sync- the drum beats are too fast and Garcia is too slow.
Subject: Big RR!!!!!!!!!!!
Subject: Jerry and Brent smoke on China>Rider
and always like to see a Dire Wolf in the mix.
4 star show.
Subject: Start '83 with this one
Subject: not missing, misplaced
The band really brought some great energy to the stage for this show.
Subject: missing encore
My favorite China>Rider ever.
For as sweet as Jerry's guitar work is, and as powerfully intense as the tunes are, you must give Brent his due here. His fills are exceptionally tasty, and when you listen to the way he weaves and bobs around Jerry's guitar, you can't help but feel he is the backbone of this show. His vocals are spot on. Truly some of his best work.
The mix on this recording is crystal clear. I can't recommend this show more highly. Thank you to the folks at archive for doing what you do!
Subject: I like this show better than the 14th
Subject: Dire Jerry
This show and the Augasta run in the fall, spring Marin and summer Alpine shows are in my top 5 1984 shows.
Subject: best show of run
the recording is crispy and full, the boys are totally on, the whole time. there's not a weak moment.
the big railroad is absurd, the let it grow fully rocks, and dare i say it?? even the day job is sassy and joyful. and if they give day job its due, you know they are not sleepwalking thru the show.
the china>rider is absolutely classic... driving and tight. the jam out of space is delicious: beautiful and jazzy with real depth and focus. jerry and bobby are listening closely to each other, they are really on to something, and they know it!!
the stephen is great. they are really on this night.
a brilliant show. better than any of this east coast run. i have listened to 10.17 (placid) and 10.21 (worcester) and they are just not as sweet.
Subject: If your a sbd person...
Subject: What's that extra mic for??
Stranger is deeply frickin good.
Subject: Get this show!
Subject: yes it is true
Subject: What Were They Thinking???
